Florida Trip

Return to Main Margie's Messages Home Page (Full List of Topics)


A couple from Minneapolis decided to go to Florida for a long weekend to thaw out during one particularly icy winter. They planned to stay at the same hotel where they spent their honeymoon 20 years before.

Both had jobs and in order to coordinate it was decided that the husband would fly to Florida on a Thursday. His wife to follow the next day. Upon arriving, the husband checked into the hotel.

There was a computer in his room so he decided to send an E-mail to his wife back in Minnneapolis. However, he accidentally left out one letter in the address and sent the E-Mail, not realizing his error.

In Houston, a widow had just returned from her husband's funeral. The dearly departed was a minister who had been called home to glory following a heart attack.

The widow checked her E-Mail, expecting messages from relatives and friends. Upon reading the first message, she fainted. Her son rushed into the room, found his mother on the floor, and saw the computer screen which read:

To: My Loving Wife

Subject: Just Arrived.

You're probably surprised to hear from me. They have computers here now and you are allowed to send E-mails to your loved ones. I've just checked in and see that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing you then! Hope your journey is as uneventful as mine was.

P. S. Sure is hot down here!
